Established as a boarding school in 1897, Loreto Normanhurst offers full time boarding for girls in years 7 - 12 and is currently a ‘home away from home’ for nearly 200 young women. Located in Sydney’s leafy Upper North Shore, the school is set on 13.6 hectares of glorious grounds, on the edge of bushland. It is approximately 45 minutes away from the city, and is conveniently close to the M1, M2 and M7 Motorways.

The grounds at Loreto Normanhurst are a pleasant mix of historic buildings and modern learning spaces, with beautiful ovals and an Aquatic Centre. The boarders have access to these wonderful facilities, as well as the Learning Resource Centre, gymnasium, tennis courts, music rooms, and other specialist rooms after hours. A caring, well-organised, stable environment characterises our boarding school, where all staff work in partnership with parents to make the most of the boarding experience. Boarders are encouraged to participate to the fullest extent in school life, discover their gifts and take advantage of every opportunity for personal growth. The school’s award-winning model of education, the Loreto Normanhurst Student Growth Model (LNSGM) is innovative and dynamic, and fosters critical thinking, curiosity and joy in learning - an education which prepares a Loreto Boarder for an exciting future.

The bonds of friendship in the boarding school are strong and lifelong. Boarders add a unique dimension to this wonderful school and are a vibrant and integral part of the Loreto Normanhurst community.
